Marlow White- Helping our nation's best look their best since 1879. The design is based on a historic heraldic device probably first used in 1818 by the Army Medical Department. The white stars on a blue background and the red and white stripes represent the United States flag of 1818. The green staff entwined with the serpent, originating in mythology, is symbolic of medicine and healing. Green was a color associated with the Corps during the last half of the nineteenth century. The rooster has a strong connection in medicine which dates back to Aesculapius, the Greek God of Healing. This connection was seen in 399 B.C., a practice at the time was to pay for medical services with poultry. On May 7, 399 B.C., Socrates died under judicial poisoning by drinking hemlock. His last recorded words were, "I owe a cock to Aesculapius, see that it is paid." The motto translates to "Experiment/Experience and Advance."
